The in August 2015 launched 57m custom built motor yacht “Halo” designed by Eidsgaard Design in cooperation with Feadship‘s in-house design team De Voogt Naval Architects and the owner of “Halo”. Interior design was created by Bernardi + Peschard.

Halo needed a short building time of 33 months and passed the sea trials well. Highlights are a fully integrated Apple TV platform and a very large sundeck with an innovative carbon fiber sun awning construction. It can be electrically retractable.

The interior by Bernardi + Peschard is the first superyacht project for the design studio from Mexico. Currently no interior pictures. Feadship describes the interior:

 

“It features light oak, dark woods and lots of bronze inlays in a surprisingly modern style.”

 

The owner’s suite is located on the main deck together with the main guest cabins. Thanks to large windows the cabins offering a panoramic view. One VIP suite is located on the bridge deck with the same characteristics like the owner’s suite (same degree and finish).

Halo features a helipad and an enclosed mooring deck forward. The tender storage for two 8m tenders is at the aft area on port and starboard. The beach club opens by folding down the transom. The diving area offers 28 bottles to spend much time under the water.

The yacht is designed for world cruising thanks to a range of 5,000 nautical miles and a cruising speed of 16 knots. Halo offers a crew accommodation of six double crew cabins plus captains cabin for a total crew space for 14 people. They are located on the lower deck.

Guests can spend her time on the large sundeck that features a custom jacuzzi. It can be covered by an innovative carbon fiber sun awning built into the canopy that slides out electrically.

Feadship director Dick van Lent told the owner during the launch ceremony:

“We were delighted to respond to your request after you enjoyed the Feadship experience during a charter trip onboard Helix.

After you had felt for yourself the perfect craftsmanship, fine detailing and unrivaled comfort at sea that a Feadship offers, you challenged us to build an extraordinary custom superyacht of your own. This short timeframe required an extensive amount of 3D modeling during the engineering design process and leveraged on the enormous organizational experience of the craftsmen at Feadship. Thanks to the close cooperation with the exterior and interior designers, Halo is a remarkable achievement in every respect.”

Peder Eidsgaard explains the design:

 

“From a quarter front view, the signature silver arches appear to run up, over and down the aft end of the yacht. As Halo drives past, however, observers will notice that the aft tip of the arch is actually turning upwards. This creates a subtle playful tail, which is an important part of the yacht’s character.”

 

For some parts of the exterior Feadship uses the first-time deployment of “a warm gray Awlgrip Mocca livery”.

The yacht has two MTU 12V4000M63 1500 kW @ 1800 rpm. That duo delivers a cruising speed of 16 knots with an operating range of 5000 nautical miles for the world cruiser.

Wishing the owner a lot of fun with this very cool design.
